    Now Is the Time

    I've been miserable for too long, so now I'm really sick of it. Can't sit in this dark pit anymore, so I guess the Universe heard my plead and started sending me an "assistance" in the form of literature and people. I want to be happy, I want to be positive every day...

    Reflecting On How To Be Happy...

    If someone asked me if I was 'happy' I'd probably reply that I'm 'content'. I think happiness is a fleeting thing that exists in the moment. In the pursuit of happiness I think that I will have to create many many 'moments' that give me joy and pleasure; many many moments that...
